Strong finish to 2016 from Deeping Dragons U7s
By Matt Allen
Clean sweep by both teams
With 2 Dragons teams playing our guests from St Ives and Bourne at Linchfield Road, the last matches of 2016 resulted in both teams being unbeaten on the day by opposition teams.
Some strong running in attack and excellent pressing in defence enabled both Dragon teams to finish on a high and maintain the high standards of tag rugby they have set themselves.
A strong squad enables us to field 2 competitive teams whose desire to win, run with the ball, tag their opponents and pressure them into mistakes is proving a winning formula for both teams.
The coaches are particularly pleased with the intent to pass the ball prior to a tag on many occasions, which opens up the pitch for the strong runners to make use of, this is becoming a key strength and a great attacking tool.
The Ridgebacks continued their unbeaten season so far and the Horntails proved they are a match for them defeating all opposing clubs and only being defeated by their squad mates in a keenly contested match. Many thanks to Chris & Andy for their help with the squad, I am very grateful for your support.
A few weeks off now to enjoy the Christmas festivities, returning in January for what promises to be a great season for this talented squad, the next generation of Deepings RUFC.
Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year
